    Store layout and decor has never been a problem. It isn’t how a business looks that makes or breaks it, it is how the business is run. Meijer is run horribly, and a new coat of paint will never hide that.

      That is a great example of penny rich pound foolish. They should have sold that location ages ago. It is too small a lot for a modern Meijer, and if they had gotten rid of it 20 years ago when they should have, they could have picked up that Walker and 4mile land for a song. Now they are stuck with a store footprint that they have to work with by hand rather than by plug-in formula, which is really expensive every time you want to change something. Plus, it is the closest Meijer to the HQ, which means they really try to not draw attention to it. So they really are limited in what they can do at that location, which for Meijer means that they do nothing but milk it until the milk runs dry. As long as sucke–uh…people…come through the doors, they don’t care.

      But yeah, what Jerry said above is the real point that should be made here. They could plate the Alpine store with gold, and it would still be the worst place to shop on all of Alpine.
